I have to fight the urge to look back with longing at my previous life.
I have to remember the pleasant days, the warm smile of friends, the feeling of being somewhere foreign and unexplored, without regret.
I am home now, that is all that matters.
I asked Yumi how she is adjusting to life in the US... does she miss the peace and quiet of Japan?
Does she feel we made the right choice, leaving the life we built there behind to finally come home?
"I'm not just happy here, I'm THRIVING!" was her immediate response. She could not have said anything more clear.
We made the right choice. Now all that is left is for me to come to terms with it.
